Seasons of Change ft. Soncy
I can’t believe the year is almost over already.
It feels like time has flown by, but it also feels like so long ago I rang in the new year with all of my friends and danced to Michael Jackson. For so long I was afraid of how quickly life changes. I felt the need to have a big to-do every time I opened or closed a new chapter. I mourned the things I left behind for weeks or months, sometimes not even enjoying the new things that were just around the corner or I was even completely entrenched in.
I have spent so much time trapped in delicately turning the pages between the chapters of my life. I worry for so long about if I was going to dog ear the pages or leave a pen mark. But I managed to not even crack open the book as I held myself back.
As I’ve focused more on coping with my anxiety and major depression, I’ve learned that change is not a bad thing. In fact, change is a great thing.
The only constant in life is change, so instead of trying to fight back against it, I’ve started leaning in to it. When I started simply letting the change happen and taking an optimistic point of view, I began to see how many magnificent things I was missing out on.
There will always be new seasons, both good and bad. But from every good season I am reminded of the incredible things I have done, goals I’ve crushed, and hard work I’ve put in to get there. However, when the bad seasons arise, I focus on where I’m going next and throw myself in to how I’ll get there.
Change is good, and I can’t wait to see what seasons are waiting for me next.
